He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Colorado State University in Fort Collins and a Master of Fine Arts from Miami University in Ohio. He has taught art at the University of Denver and at Colorado State University.
Rick’s work is well-known and highly regarded; his western themes make him particularly well received in Colorado but his reach extends beyond region. Rick participates in local and national shows, such as The Governor’s Invitational, Artists of America, and The American Art Invitational. He has participated in the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale at the annual National Western Stock Show in Denver. Rick also sells directly to collectors and accepts commissioned work.
Rick says of his work, “The subjects in my paintings tend to take their own paths… I start out with a particular setup, then end up putting more objects in or taking things out or moving things around.”
